NASA has chosen Unisys to provide application development and systems integration services to support the simulation and flight research projects at the NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) in Hampton, VA. The Langley Simulation and Aircraft Technical Services contract has a three-year base period, with one two-year option, exercisable at the discretion of the government. This award extends the company’s 35-year relationship with NASA.
Under the contract, Unisys will be responsible for software and hardware design, development, and testing, as well as operations and maintenance of Langley’s simulation infrastructure and research systems. Unisys also will provide a range of technical services supporting NASA’s software and hardware technology and innovation initiatives for flight simulation facilities and research aircraft systems.
During its collaborative relationship with NASA, Unisys developed the standard software framework used in LaRC simulators. The software, known as Langley Standard Real-Time Simulation in C++, was recognized as the LaRC Software of the Year in 2005, and was credited for saving NASA an estimated $17 million over 10 years through reduced labor costs due to high levels of software reuse.
